The Habsburg dynasty ruled Vorarlberg alternately from the Tyrol or from Freiburg im Breisgau. From 1805 to 1814, Kennelbach belonged to Bavaria, and then again to Austria. It has been part of the Austrian state of Vorarlberg since its establishment in 1861. In the 19th century and first half of the 20th century, it was strongly influenced by the Schindler[disambiguation needed] industrial family, whose cotton spinning factories closed in 1968. The former Schindler family home, Villa Grünau, has belonged to the municipal government since 1992 and is the home of the municipal government. From 1945 to 1955, the municipality was part of the French occupation zone of Austria.
